Indian-born Manmohan Malhotra decided to re-locate to London, England, established himself, returned to India, got married to Bebo, and after a period of 4 years got a visa for her so that she could live with him. Shortly thereafter she gave birth to Jasmeet. Manmohan was always embarrassed of Bebo, as she was overly healthy and not quite sophisticated, as a result he always left her at home, while he socialized. Bebo did not want Jasmeet to end up like her, so got her admitted in an English Medium school, encouraged to mingle with Caucasian friends, and as a result Jasmeet was transformed in to Jazz - a stunningly beautiful young woman, British in looks, talk, habits, and heart. Manmohan's plans to get her married to an Indian boy are all in vain. His friend, Parvez Khan, is in a similar situation with his son, Imran, openly romancing a Caucasian blonde, Susan. Manmohan decides to take his family for a tour in India, and ends up getting her married to Arjun Singh. On their return to ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

a incredibly good movie
23 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

i saw this movie in a theater near my home. it is a very good Indian movie. it is typically a masala, bollywood movie, which means it is full of entertainment. you will regret if you will not watch this movie in a theater near you. the director has done a great job. it has the complete dosage of comedy, romance, emotions. the music is also very good. i think it will the one of the biggest hits of 2007despite of the cricket world cup going on. it a complete roller coaster, some of the scenes in the movie are 2 hilarious . the first half is out and out comedy. the second half has a little less comedy. but it is also entertaintment. talking about the performances. everyone is good. katrina has improved a lot. rishi kapoor has done a fine job.but the actor who has done a great job is akhsay kumar. you will surely love this man. you will laugh with him, you will cry with him. he is extraordinary in the movie. so watch this movie if you haven't watch a good movie for quite a while. and plz don't watch it on cd or DVD. u will regret this. it is one of the few best movies which u can see on a big screen.
